Special Teams Helps Seal Sunday’s Win

Posted by Mike Wobschall on November 22, 2009 – 7:17 pm

In the Game Summary of today’s 35-9 Vikings win over Seattle, we identified the game-deciding moment was the 2nd-quarter fumble recovery by the Vikings special teams unit and subsequent Bernard Berrian TD reception that made the score 21-0 just before halftime.

It was fitting that the game-deciding play was turned in by the special teams. Both the Vikings offense and defense put together complete performances, so the big special teams play – the fumble was forced by S Jamarca Sanford and recovered by Farwell – allowed that unit to contribute significantly as well.

While speaking with reporters after the game, Vikings LB Chad Greenway, who plays on the Vikings kick coverage unit, spoke about that crucial play.

“The biggest play of the game to me was the special teams play,” Greenway said. “The unbelievable hit and play. We have wanted that for years and we finally got one and now we can get those things rolling and we can feed off of that. It makes our offense and defense better.”

    It would be really nice to watch the press releases AND be able to hear the questions too. Is it too much to ask – to have a microphone in the back of the room so the questions can be heard as well as the answers??

    Couldn’t agree with you more 13thEA. There must be something that the TV crew can do, such as aiming a directional microphone towards the person asking the Q, or simply putting it up in subtext as it’s asked.
